Letters to the Editor

Letter: Could majority be wrong?

To the Editor:

Patrick McNulty, in his recent letter (Jan. 9, Kane County Chronicle), tells us, “According to a survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, which was funded, in part, by the Ford Foundation and the Nathan Cummings Foundation, 54 percent of Catholics believe that gay and lesbian couples should be permitted to marry legally. If that is the case, Bishop Malloy’s letter represents the opinion of the majority of Catholic bishops but only a minority of Catholics.”

Patrick, were the crowds (and I must assume that it was better than 54 percent of those present) who yelled, “Crucify Him; Crucify Him!” right in their opinion? Or is it possible for a majority vote, a consensus
as it were, to be wrong?
